During the summer’s barbecues, we all know and enjoy kebabs. Everything that you can enjoy to eat can be put on a skewer; from tomatoes, bell peppers to chicken, shrimps and tofu. Did you know that we can also serve them as a dessert? At JIMINI’S, we’re not missing any opportunity to serve them in their sweet versions.
